Fans and colleagues of Alan Rickman took to social media Thursday morning to mourn the iconic British actor, who died of cancer today at the age of 69.
Rickman was a prolific actor on screen and on stage but he was perhaps best known to American audiences for portraying Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies.
